Summary

CLINICAL NUTRITION CASE STUDIES includes over 40 clinical cases, introducing students to the the broad range of clinical situations faced as a diet therapist, from alcoholic cirrhosis and insulin- and noninsulin-dependant diabetes to vegetarianism, body building, atherosclerosis, and much more. Each case includes a detailed description of patients' histories and nutritional problems, followed by a list of questions that invite students to apply their classroom and clinical lessons to the situations presented.

Benefits:

  • NEW! Each case study includes an introduction; a list of skills needed, including abbreviations, formulas, laboratory values, and medications; case scenario descriptions; and a set of questions for students to answer. The case studies have been rewritten to be more consistent in depth, length, and difficulty.
  • This case book can be used standalone or in conjunction with any "Diet Therapy" text, like our Rolfes et al. UNDERSTANDING NORMAL AND CLINICAL NUTRITION, Seventh Edition; Cataldo et al. NUTRITION AND DIET THERAPY, Sixth Edition; or Whitney et al. NUTRITION FOR HEALTH AND HEALTH CARE, Second Edition.
  • Available to be bundled with INFOTRAC® COLLEGE EDITION for no additional charge, this online database includes current, full-text articles from thousands of scholarly and popular publications and is a great source for current information.
  • NEW! Expanded coverage of alternative medicines and herbal supplements, as well as protein-energy malnutrition has been included to better reflect the more contemporary nutrition issues presented by patients today. New cases include Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, high-protein/low-carb diets, and clinical use of nutritional genomics.
  • NEW! A new table has been added to the beginning of the casebook, providing an alternative to locating or selecting cases based on criteria. The table represents topics/conditions, such as herbal supplements, which are not represented as their own case, but rather part of other cases.
  • NEW! Lab values have been added to each case, using a similar lab panel based on the one used in hospitals, so students see the same information presented for a patient with each disease condition.
  • NEW! Instructional material related to each case is provided to adopters in the "Answer Guide," available both in a print and on the text Web site (http://nutrition.wadsworth.com).
  • NEW! DIET ANALYSIS PLUS 7.0, available Online and a Win/Mac CD-ROM, can be packaged with this text at a substantial discount. An incredible value to your students, this professional-quality software allows student to track and assess food intake for one or more profiles, includes the latest DRI information, such as new energy calculations and Vitamin A and E values, an increased number of foods, and much more.
